Link to:
Agents / Buyers | Photos & Coordinates | Sources

A 125,000-bushel composite grain elevator at Arborg, on the CPR Arborg Subdivision, was built by Manitoba Pool Elevators between late 1981 and early 1982. It opened officially on 19 March 1982. In 1994, three steel tanks were built beside the elevator, increasing its capacity by 100,000 bushels. Closed by Agricore United in 2003, it was demolished by its successor Viterra in April 2009.
